"Be Still and Know"

When things are going on and going wrong in our lives, why is it that we feel unable to sit still?
It's as if staying in constant motion makes us believe we are
actively working on solutions.
 The compulsion to solve, act, and do is constant and pressing.
 When I finally stop moving, exhausted by the chatter in my mind and physical circling of my world, 
I peer into my hands only to find
they are empty. No answers. No solutions.
Just a lot of energy wasted.
Next time, I will try to sit still
and just listen.

I have this tiny set but I'm currently saving for a larger set. These crayons are wonderfully versatile, bright, blendable, and cover larger areas easily. Another favorite supply of mine
